Interesting I got it to work w/ transmit version 3.5.3 but I could not use cyberduck or smartftp. Any idea why? I am afraid this version is trial only but I am not sure if it well expire.
Peace

Different default settings I guess. You'll have to compare them and see if you can figure out how to make it work in cyberduck.

I still don't see files in this item, perhaps you're still working it out:

Incidentally, I have fixed the other major problem with this item, which is that it was misfiled under "...And You Will Know Us By the Trail of the Dead", not Blue Turtle Seduction.

I think we will be seeing a lot of misfiles in the poor Trail of Dead section, as uploaders get used to the select-via-pulldown process. (We had a similar issue of misfiled setlists at db.etree.org, and as catchers for mistakes I actually added fake artist names to the beginning of each letter of the alphabet there!)

Is it possible to put in a "select your band" entry at the top of that picklist that doesn't actually link anywhere?

You mean a dummy collection just like for AB AC... at db.etree.org? Hm, we could just make one that we're sure could sort first, maybe like "....A Band to Select"? (note extra . to come first before Trail of Dead, if that's an issue.)

But might want to see how bad a problem it is before doing something like this. We might not need it, since the Trail name lights up as *really* obvious in the curation queue anyway on its own, since it is so long. :)

Sort of, but without the band name even being associated with a collection. It's possible to have a picklist entry that doesn't "go" anywhere (that's what I use for picklists on the search engine in my web site, to avoid spurious searches) - stick that at the top, throw in a "please choose a band" alert if the button is pushed with that "band" selected, and presto, no entries misfiled as "...And You Will Know, etc.". :)

I think we'd risk blackholing some filesets that way- they still may go in with the spurious id, not being associated with any valid collection.
